Kabul (BNA) However, May 1st 2013 has been anticipated for signing of security agreement between Kabul and Washington.  But ministry of foreign affairs of Afghanistan has directed the concerned organs working in this respect to refer the draft containing stance and recommendations of the government to the House of Representatives for ratification.
Meanwhile, a number of political commentators and security analysts have said that if the security agreement between Washington and Kabul not singed within the next nineteen days.  From the legal point of view, the agreement loses its legitimacy.
As both allies Afghanistan and the United States gets nearer to the timeline for signing of the security pact.  But until now, it seems that government of Afghanistan hasn’t undertaken full preparations for signing of the agreement.  The security treaty between the two nations is part of the strategic cooperation partnership agreement signed before between president Karzai and his American counterpart president Obama early on January and put for implementation on July 2012.
While timing for signing of the security peace between Afghanistan and the US is remained less than a month, its seems that necessary preparations for official signing of the agreement yet to be witnessed.
In a news briefing, Janan Mosazai, a spokesman to the ministry of foreign affairs of Afghanistan told media that negotiation and consultations over signing of the security treaty between the two countries are taking place in full pace and govt of Afghanistan will aware the nation about the agreement when timetable for signing of the pact is finalized.
It’s said that the security agreement between Afghanistan and the US makes clear obligations and responsibilities of the United States in the country after 2014 following the timeline set for withdraw of international troops.
Evaluating significance of the security agreement between Kabul and Washington, legal expert Wadir Safai told that the two countries haven’
T completed discussions and consultations over main part of the security agreement and it’s beyond imagination to claim that both countries will sign on the agreement within 19 days adding that if the security agreement isn’t signed on the set time line, then, it completely loses its legal status and not remained legitimate.
The National Security Council (NSC) in its recent session besides evaluating legality of the agreement directed the concerned institutions working in this respect to dispatch recommendations and stance of the government of Afghanistan to the parliament for approval.  The NSC has also urged that national interest should be considered in the agreement.
Talking on the Afghan-US security agreement, parliamentarian Syed Hussain Anwari sand that the security agreement favors interests of Afghanistan on condition that the US defend the country against external threats and foreign interferences and show serious reaction to the invasions that violate territorial integrity and national sovereignty of the country and added that if the US not shielded Afghanistan against foeign threats, then signing of the agreement is useless and it wouldn’t have positive impacts on security situations of the country.
The topic over signing of security pact between Washington and the US has followed major speculations and also supports and even some circles had also strived to prevent signing the agreement.  But, it’s vital to mention that the president has already said that the US should be committed on respecting territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Afghanistan by foreign security relations.
The important questions over the agreement is that will the US endorse all recommendations and conditions of Afghanistan in the security agreement and  will Afghanistan be prepared to provide judicial safety to the US troops.
But, political commentators and military analysts believe that government of Afghanistan should create the proper opportunity and represent a clear feature from the security agreement sol that responsibility of the United States with regard to Afghanistan is clarified on the bases of diplomatic ties and Afghanistan as alternative NATO member nation.
It’s quite important to mention that the security agreement conveys a clear message to the enemies and insurgent groups who have anticipated a contrary perception from the post 2014 situations and believe that the country will enter into a new chaotic era.
The security agreement clarifies to the warring groups that Afghanistan will have longstanding supports of international community mainly the US after the timeline of foreign troops pullout and here the world community retains obligations to continue backing ANSF with modern arms and technology so that these forces be able to accomplish their military tasks effectively following foreign forces callback and come over on the security threats strongly and efficiently.
